The Mercure Burton Upon Trent Newton Park Hotel has been sold off of a guide price of £2.2million to a new hotel company, Raky Hotels.
The deal for the 18th century country house in Newton Solney, which has operated under the Mercure brand, was arranged by specialist commercial real estate firm Colliers on behalf of Jupiter Hotels. The 50-bedroom Grade-II property which has been sympathetically extended over the years, includes bars, restaurants, lounges and five meeting or events rooms.
Situated within 4.75 acres of landscaped gardens, the hotel was previously a popular destination for domestic and overseas travellers, and with the pagoda and many of the rooms licensed for weddings it has been a popular venue for local residents as well.
The hotel is only 15 miles from East Midlands Airport as well as renowned tourist destinations such as Alton Towers, Chatsworth House and the Peak District.
